Hannibal Gaddafi


Hannibal Gaddafi, son of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, awaits judicial investigations in Lebanon on the subject of kidnapping founder of the Supreme Islamic Shi’ite Council in Lebanon, Musa Al-Sadr and his two companions Sheikh Muhammad Yaacoub and journalist Abbas Badreddine in the year of 1978.
The assigned judicial investigator to the case, Judge Zaher Hamadeh demanded that the arrested Hannibal Gaddafi be brought to his office at the Ministry of justice for questioning on the case, deciding on how beneficial the information he possesses is, and clear the 40-decade obscurity hovering over the fate of the prime Shi’ite religious leader.
The Lebanese General-Security system has successfully freed Gaddafi’s son, after him being kidnapped in Damascus and transferred to the Beqaa region, situated east of Lebanon. Hannibal was kidnapped in an operation perpetrated by a Syrian influential mob related to Suleiman Hilal Al Assad, cousin of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, who later turned him over to benefiting Lebanese figures.
